CSRD seeks justice for vulnerable communities threatened by external change. We help to create community resilience to threats resulting from climate change, development, agribusiness and industrialisation.
CSRD is based in Hue, Vietnam. It is a self-funded non-government organisation (NGO) working to seek justice for vulnerable communities threatened by external change. CSRD has retained a geographical focus in Thua Thien Hue and adjacent provinces in the Central Region of Vietnam but has also undertaken projects throughout the lower Mekong.
We achieve our results through four key activities:
- We research the real issues at the grass roots level and maintain grass roots buy-in at all stages of project implementation.
- We act as change agents and raise awareness by training and advocacy.
- We empower the disadvantaged, particularly women, helping them realize their rights and how to make their voices heard.
- We lead pilot projects such as mangrove planting, composting and child education to demonstrate change options.
